President Donald Trump’s legal team did not respond Tuesday to an offer by Stormy Daniels to return the $130,000 that she received in return for agreeing to stay silent about Trump’s alleged extramarital affair with her, according to a lawyer for the porn actress.

The lawyer, Michael Avenatti, had set a deadline of noon Eastern time for Trump’s lawyers to accept her offer to settle the lawsuit that Daniels filed against the president last week in Los Angeles.

Trump and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen let the deadline pass with no answer, Avenatti said on Twitter.

The suit seeks to void the confidentiality agreement that she signed days before the November 2016 presidential election. Daniels is the stage name of Stephanie Clifford.
